    Pastor Michelle was born and raised in East Hartford Connecticut. She graduated with a B.S. in Biology and Secondary Education in 1972 from Central Connecticut State College. Soon after this she came to know the Lord through music, and in this way began to minister through songwriting and leading worship in many different venues. It wasn't long before she felt the calling to go into full time pastoral leadership. Michelle attended Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary from 1977-1980, graduating with her Masters of Divinity. She also completed three units of Clinical Pastoral Education from Andover Newton Theological School from 1980-1981, and is a Licensed minister with the Assemblies of God. God has used Pastor Michelle powerfully over the years in full time ministry as an Associate Pastor, Lead Pastor, and now is the minister in charge of Pastoral Care at First Assembly.
